Harvest Music Festival is thrilled to announce a glorious and jam-packed lineup for the 2023 festival, taking place from September 12-17 in downtown Fredericton, New Brunswick.
The festival has attracted some of the biggest touring acts in North America this year, including Phish frontman and founder Trey Anastasio and Classic TAB, southern rock legends Gov’t Mule, New Orleans jazz, blues and funk phenom Trombone Shorty, along with Canadian singer-songwriter and three-time Grammy nominee Allison Russell and Icelandic blues rockers Kaleo.
Stellar Canadian talent will be front and centre on Harvest stages, including producer, songwriter and hitmaker Daniel Lanois, indie rock collective Broken Social Scene, hometown heroes Matt Andersen & the Big Bottle of Joy, platinum selling, blues-rock reggae band Big Sugar, Juno-award winning blues powerhouse Crystal Shawanda, and emerging multi-instrumentalist and singer songwriter Aysanabee.
“We are delighted to bring the festival back to pre-pandemic strength this year, offering Harvest fans a full slate of don’t miss artists and festival faves on multiple stages, which includes the rebirth of the Mojo Tent,” said Harvest Music Director Brent Staeben. “This year’s exciting lineup reinvigorates Harvest’s reputation as Atlantic Canada’s biggest and best music event by offering something for everyone, with electrifying blues roots, New Orleans sizzle, rock, folk, hip-hop and jazz.”
More artists in this year’s festival include: Bette Smith, Laila Biali, Cory Wong, Stars, David Myles, Joel Plaskett Emergency, Wide Mouth Mason, White Denim, Neal Francis, and many, many more.
The 2023 event takes place on the shores of the Wolastoq River in downtown Fredericton, featuring a Blues Tent behind City Hall, a Barracks Stage in the historic Garrison District, a newly designed Mojo Tent in Officer’s Square, shows at the soft-seat Fredericton Playhouse theatre, a pubs and clubs series, performances on the Tony George Jazz Stage at the Hilton Garden Inn Fredericton Downtown, along with free programming, the return of Kids Fest, food vendors and buskers on Queen Street and the Carleton Street Extension. All venues are accessible and within easy walking distance of one another.
Later this summer, Harvest will launch a new app for smartphone users to view schedules, artist bios, get up-to-the-minute festival information and plan their own Harvest experience.
Harvest is made possible by the incredible hard work of more than 700 community volunteers, the support of our presenting sponsors, TD, Molson Coors, and the Ginger Agency, and in partnership with more than 60 local businesses who sponsor the event.
